Jason Reitman's Live Read 
Jason Reitman’s Live Read, Boogie Nights
The script of Paul Thomas Anderson’s groundbreaking Boogie Nights will be presented to audiences in a one-take read-through with Reitman narrating stage direction on Friday, September 6 at 6 p.m.
In this special event, filmmaker Jason Reitman (Labor Day, Up in the Air) directs a live stage reading of a classic screenplay performed by a surprise cast. With no rehearsal, the actors come together for a one-take read-through with Reitman narrating stage direction.
Jason Reitman created Live Read in October 2011, in collaboration with Elvis Mitchell, for the film society of Los Angeles County Museum of Arts (LACMA). The six month hit series featured Breakfast Club (Jennifer Garner and Aaron Paul), The Apartment (Steve Carell and Natalie Portman), The Princess Bride (Paul Rudd), Shampoo (Bradley Cooper and Kate Hudson), The Big Lebowski (Seth Rogen), and Reservoir Dogs, featuring an all-African American cast including actors Laurence Fishburne and Terrence Howard.
In 2012, the Festival welcomed Reitman and an all-star cast — including Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Adam Driver, Sarah Gadon and George Stroumboulopoulos — for a live table read of Alan Ball’s screenplay for American Beauty.
